Several injured in double-crane accident in Netherlands

 Several people were injured in the western Dutch town of Alphen aan den Rijn on Monday when two cranes working on a bridge upgrade toppled onto houses nearby, the local fire brigade said.



The Hague: Several people were injured in the western Dutch town of Alphen aan den Rijn on Monday when two cranes working on a bridge upgrade toppled onto houses nearby, the local fire brigade said.

The cranes were carrying a stretch of roadway for the local Juliana Bridge when the first machine went down.

Unbalanced by the extra load, the second crane then fell.

The Dutch TV channel NOS said the cranes fell on a second-hand clothing store and another shop selling art and drawing supplies, but it was unclear how many people were inside the buildings at the time.
